I dug out some very old (but very nice) data from a LONG time ago. This is an image of the Cygnus Wall taken with the original Hyperstar (no collimation or camera rotation adjusters) and a tiny little H9C OSC … Continue reading
A real blast from the past. Just came across this one and tarted it up a little on Paint Shop Pro. This is the Cygnus Wall region of the North America Nebula. I cannot remember the year this was taken … Continue reading
This is an original Hyperstar (no collimation or camera angle adjusters) and SX H9C OSC CCD image of the Coma cluster of galaxies. This galaxy cluster was made famous by Fritz Zwicky who studied the cluster, and by applying the … Continue reading
Once again several different datasets have been combined using Registar and slightly processed to give these rather deep results.
Managed to process the full width of this image which I didn’t think I’d manage to do when I started on this one earlier today.
Managed to squeeze out a bigger crop which brought in the top of M42 at the bottom of the image.
I used Registar to add together all the data I had on the Running Man nebula in Orion. This amounted to well over 80 hours of total exposure time including some recent 5 x 1,000 second subs from the Hyperstar … Continue reading
I used Registar to create this composite of Hyperstar I and Hyperstar III data taken of the Whirlpool galaxy, M51. Around 3 and a half hours of f#2 data taken with an 11″ SCT. Clearly worth getting even more data … Continue reading
The version below – but a little brighter 🙂 Looking at this image with fresh eyes this morning rather than towards midnight last night – it looked to dark overall, so brightened it up a bit.
This is a composite image showing the Leo Trio region. Hyperstar III data taken on 21st March 2010 has been combined with older Hyperstar 1/H9C (2-frames) data from much earlier. The composite was created using the powerful registering program Registar.
